Why Knot‘ is a celebration of wood and the ways in which you can treat it to carve out unique and beautiful artifacts. But we wanted a name for our brand that celebrates the uniqueness of wood but is very round and chic. As ‘Why Not’ is one of most commonly used expressions in our everyday lingo, we thought of clubbing the uniqueness of the wood I.e it’s ‘knots/grains’ with the contemporary pun intended good humored expression. And thus, we coined the brand ‘WHY KNOT’.
Why Knot is an unprecedented home decor and gifting brand that offers a varying range of products which are not only impeccably designed but are utilitarian too.
